Her agents in this city have Just received a letter from the actress authorizing to arrange such a tour, THE ELEVATOR BOY. Some Personal Adventures As Writ ten by Himself. -.-(Copyright, 1902, by C. B. Lewis.) Four weeks ago when a new tenant tooved Into room 228 and hung out sign of "California Lands ' I was anx ious to let the man know that I was an elevator boy of a willing and oblig ing disposition. He was named Thomp son. He had a bald head, a benign look and a fatherly smile, and I felt that we should be friends. Before bad got around to call on him he sent for me, and when I reached his room he shook bands with me and said: "Sammis, I have heard of you. You re a fatherless boy, I believe?" "Yes, sir, strictly fatherless." .-. "And the sole support of a widowed mother?" "Xae sol support, sir. It la any ivages that ikeep up the- house,; pay the rtaxes,; square bur pew rent, and i-nable mother to put In the summer it Long Branch." "And there Is a mortgage . en the iieuse? : - . - - "A whopping big one, sir. It covers ill the front yard and a part of the Ueps. It makes me lop shouldered to carry the interest around in my pock et I dream of it by night and groan over it by, day." "Well, Sammis," continued Mr. Thompson as his smile grew softer, you have found one who will be a second father to you and extend a helping band. You need dream and Itroan no more. Just go right ahead ind be happy. I haven't time to say more Just at present, but you keep an eye on me and drop in again." I couldn't figure that I had made much out of Mr. .Thompson, but I I ried to be as happy as I could and waited a week for him to send for roe. : As he didn't do it, I called on him again. I found four girls in his office. Some of them were reading novels and some chewing gum and looking out of the windows. "Ah, Sammis, my son, I am glad to ee you again," said Mr. Thompson as lie held out his hand. "I should have r.ent for you before if I hadn't been so rushed with business. You see that California lands are booming. If the boom continues, I shall have to get Iwo more girls before the week is out." "Yes, sir," I said. "And -about that mortgage don't worry, Sammis. Nothing affects a young boy's constitution so much as worrying over a mortgage. Just sing nd whistle and act as if there was no such thing as a mortgage on a widow's home. Are you smoking ciga rettes and playing the horse nowa days?" "No, sir. I haven't got any sugar to do it on." ' "That's bad, Sammis, and I sym pathize with you, but don't be dis couraged. Yeu may find a roll of bills in your elevator any day, you know, is the mother getting along all right?" "No, sir. Her old clothes are all worn out, and she can't see where she is to ;et any new ones." "I'm! I see. That's bad again, but there is an offset. If she hasn't any good clothes, she won't have to go to Long Branch this summer nor give any high teas at home. Speak of this to your mother, my sob, and cheer her up. Do you think you could make good use of a dollar, Sammis?" "I do, sir." "Then you shall have it seme day. Meanwhile there is a little matter I should like to talk over with you. Fa ther and son ought to have each oth er's confidence. You have mine, and I want yours. Yeu see that my business our business is rushing. It will probably continue to rush until there is no mere land in California to be sold. We are to be congratulated, Sam mis." "We are, sir," I said. "A wife ought to be satisfied when her husband is rushing business and making money, but some of them are not For instance" "Your wife may come down here some day?" "Exactly, Sammis. ' I see that yon are a boy who knows his business. Yes, her anxiety to see for herself how California lands are selling may bring her down here any day. In such an event I shall be glad to see her of course, but" "But it would Interrupt business," I said. .... -: I "That's it, Sammis; it would. Your penetration pleases me, and I am proud to be a father to you. - If Mrs. Thompson, who Is an undersized woman with a sharp nose and snap ping eyes, should call some day and ask for me you will say that I am out for the day." "Yes, sir. You have gone over to New Jersey to look at a block of build ings. I understand." , ' "Sammis, you are' a liar and a jewel!" he exclaimed as he took my hand. "I spoke of, giving you a dollar some day. It shall be two. Such genius as yours should be rewarded as It merits. Yes, you can discourage Mrs. Thompson from coming upstairs, and if she insists you can land her on the wrong floor and then notify me that she is gamboling about the build ing. , I shall depend upon you to notify me without delay. Remember, a little woman with a sharp nose and snap ping eyes. She also bites off her words as she talks, and if you notice her hands you will see that she instinc tively doubles her fists in case an ar gument arises. Do you fully under stand, Sammis?" - "Yes, sir. Anything more?" "Nothing more, my son, and you rosy now disappear. Keep on aa you hSve begun, . and you'll own a skyscraper clear of all debt within five years." When I backed out of Mr. Thomp son's office, I realized that he was playing me for a soft mark, and the iron entered my soul. Nothing is more dangerous than to fool with an ele vator boy. The more humble he looks the more dangerous the fooling. ... I thirsted for revenge, but I didn't have to thirst long. The next day he got two more girls t help the others chew gum, and on the next as I was flirt; ing with a typewriter, Mrs. Thompson entered the vestibule and came, di rectly to my elevator. "Boy," said she, "is there anybody In this building who sella California lands?" "There is," I replied. ,"Is his name 'Thompson?" ' , v : "It is' . . ' v- . "Then take me to his office." "But he's. -rushed with business, ma'am, he and his six girl clerks, and you'll put things out" "Oh, he's rushed, is he!" she snapped. "And he's got six girls to help on the rush! .J thought he was up to the old game again. '-Now, then, you take me right to his door and be quick about it if you want to save your hair!" I took her. up. She waited at the door to settle her hat on her head and 'NOW, THEN. YOU TAKE ME EIGHT TO HIS DOOR!" draw a long breath, and then she bounced in. In about fifteen seconds the six girls came bouncing out, one after another, and Mr. Thompson brought up the rear. He didn't get out however, :- He was pulled back inte the room, the door locked, and it was aa hour, later before he and his wife passed downstairs. His coat was tora up the back, his' collar and neck tie gone, and- there were scratches all over his face, and the little woman kept fast hold of his arm and bit off her words as she said: "Yes, business is rushing, and if you try to get away from me on the way home I'll make you think that every redwood tree in California has come down on you" Every boy-who is fatherless wants a new father, but when anybody comes around this skyscraper looking for a son who is easy to "work" he wants to beware ot -: v " SAMMIS, The Elevator Boy. ' Brother Gardner's Remarks. "It am once agMn my painful dooty,' said Brother Gardner after the regular proceedings of the Limekiln club had been disposed of "it am once ag'in my painful dooty to speak to de members of die club in regard to de use of big words. It was ooly0 last night as I walked home from prayer meetin' along wid Waydown Bebee dat he keerlessly obsarved dat de eliminashun of de elucidashua appeared to. coerce de coherion of de gratificashun. . What on airth he meant I can't say, but I knew he felt proud ober'his flow of language. A week ago I was in a feed store when Samuel Shin come in arter fodder for his old mewl. He didn't dun see me, an' as. he laid down. 30 cents he remarked dat de problematical disqualificashun had .werry much em barrassed de unexpected arsimilashun De feed store man didn't fall dead, but I don't know why he didn't Two days since, when Samuel Shin was axed if he believed de whale swallered Joner, he puffed out his chest an' re plied dat his perversity of de sinuosity led him to articulate to de pomposity. If yo' was to ax him what he meant ha couldn't tell yo'; but he's feelin' werry proud of them big words. ' "I ain't gwine to waste no time ober dis ' subject Mebbe de strangulashun of de reservashun exceeds de placidity of de . impecuniosity, ant mebbe de gratificashun of de realizashun limits de verbosity of de paralysis. As to dis I can't say, but I do know, an' I gib de members of dis club fair warnin, dat if dar am any mo' concentrashun of de consequentiality around yere I shall purceed to eventuate de diagram of de monstrosity in a way to particu late de effervescence of de ardusity. We want nuffin but plain words, an words dat we kin all understan', an' from dis time on we shall eventuate de glorosity of de English language or maintain a consanguinity of calamitous configura- shun." James Returned. He had returned from his two weeks off looking much the better for it and as he entered the store the proprietor advanced and shook hands with him and gave him a warm welcome. The bookkeeper was puzzled and put out but only for a moment Then the pro prietor explained. i "James, we have had an "expert on your books during your absence." v "Y-yes, sir." ? "He haa discovered that' you have embezzled $350,000 from us during the last two years." "But sir" "Don't deny It James. Figures won't -lie. Yes, you have embezzled $350,000" ' "But; I I" - ; "and I am glad to aee yea back. We happen to be hard up Just at present- and if you could lend us $25,000 we'd take it as a great favor and re member it the first of the year. There's a check, James, and please fill it out and (go on with your work aa usual. Glad .you had a good time, and I hope it wont inconvenience you in the least to pall as out of the- hole. That's all. and thank xu very, much." - - TELLS -OF A MURDER. Jegsie Redmond Arrested by Police Implicates Husband. Last night .Officer Mcintosh arrested a woman on Kansas avenue who was wandering around in an Intoxicated condition, and started with her to the station. On the way she told the officer that she was, and had been for several months, the Wife of James Redmond, who was siispected of the murder of an old German -woman named Shoemaker in Kansas City four years ago. She also raved against her husband, and said she would make him "swing" for the way he had treated her, saying that sue had left him recently at Solomon City, on the Union Pacific, after he had broken her collar bone In a brutal assault She continued to talk about seeing him "swing," and repeated her asser tions to officers who questioned her this morning, after she had sobered. She says that although the case had been dismissed against her husband for want of evidence, be bad confessed to her that he did kill tie woman. The crime in question was committed in February, 1898, on the outskirts of Kansas City, near the Heim Park railway. The murdered woman kept a small store, and was murdered about 9 o'clock at night presumably for the purpose of roDDery. it occurred at tne same time that Jesse James. Jr.. was under sus picion for train robbery, and the police did not give the. case proper attention. About this time James Redmond, who was under strong suspicion, enlisted in the regular army under an assumed name and later went to the Philippines. Sveral months later he was brought back to stand trial for the murder, but the evidence was so thin that he was never tried. If the woman sticks to her assertion the murderer may yet be brought to justice. She gives her name as Jessie Redmond. MATTER FOE W0RBY. How to Secure Business Growing Out of Isthmian Canal Building. New York. Aug. 22. Referring to the fact that the construction of the Pan ama canal will necessitate the transpor tation of hundreds of cargoes of con struction material, food supslies. for workmen, etc.. the Journal of Com merce savs: Panama and Colon are foreign ports, and there Is nothing therefore to pre vent foreign ship owners from compet ing at low rates for carrying material. It is said by a representative of the Panama canal interests that the mater ial required in the construction of the canal will certainly exceed $10,000,000, in addition to food supplies. This material will consist very largely of cement. granite, lumber and machinery. Tlie lumber will undoubtedly come largely from Oregon and that section of the country and will not be a matter of much concern to ship owners on the At lantic ocean, but in the case of cement. stone and machinery, the items will be of great imnortance, and communica tions have already been sent to the gov ernment at Washington with a view to seeing if some way can not be decided upon whereby this enormous carrying movement be confined to American ships. It is proposed that a construc tion of the coastwise law could be made declaring the six-mile zone on either side of the canal to be American terri tory, and this would convert Panama and Colon into domestic ports. This zone, under the treaty with Colombia, is" merely leased to. the united States, as Colombia does not relinquish her sov ereignty and some doubt, is expressed whether the government could therefore assume the ports of Panama and Colon without incurring international complica tions, under tne bill as passed by con gress no restriction of the carrying trade to American vessels can be made and American ship owners claim that they will not be able to meet the com petition of foreign vessels in this trade, for the reason that a large number of fruit vessels re available for service largely Norwegian vessels, which bring fruit north and have virtually no south bound cargo. These vessels would nat urally be able to carry southbound car go at much lower rates . than could American vessels, which must make their entire expenses on such south bound cargo and return north practical ly in ballast It Is Contagious. New York, Aug. 22. The report that the managers of the World's Fair at St Louis propose to buy the Washington ancestral home near Banbury and transplant it to the grounds- of the ex hibition is regarded with feelings of dis may here, says the London corespondent of the Tribune. The house itself will not be specially missed, as it is not a shrine of English pilgrimage, but, as tne Morn ing Post points out, the desire for an cestral homes is contagious. City Ticket Office.
